The monks celebrate the Eucharist each day and services are open to the public.
In addition we pray the Liturgy of the Hours (chanting psalms, reading scriptures, offering prayers of intercession) four or five times each day.
ALL ARE WELCOME to join us in these prayer times, regardless of religious background. Books are made available for all to follow along the prayers of the Hours being sung.
Visitors are also welcome to walk our peaceful grounds - walk the labyrinth, enjoy the herb garden, walk the stations of the cross. Click here to view the grounds as drawn by local artist and Oblate Patricia Laliberte.
